I Didn’t Have to Buy Clubbing Clothes
by Migs Ramirez
My friend, Karren, challenged me to finish the initial draft of this book in two weeks. Within those two weeks, she committed to write her book too.
“Two weeks? Are you crazy?!”
“We can do it!” she said.
Then we thought of a consequence — something that would scare us to death if we didn’t finish our manuscripts. We came up with the perfect consequence. We wrote it and signed it. Here’s what it said:
“We, Eduardo Miguel F. Ramirez and Karren Renz P. Seña, commit to write and finish our book by November 13, 2015, Friday. Failure to present the first draft either by meeting or email will incur the following penalty: We will go to a posh bar/club, dressed in clubbing clothes, stay for at least an hour and get the number of a random girl (for Migs) or guy (for Karren), and present it to each other. So help us God.”
After signing, we had chills to the bone.
“We’d better finish it.”
Both of us agreed.
Did we go?
Well, you could tell that my nights and days were more than busy, wanting to get this done. But on the last day, our emails simply proved that we really weren’t the clubbing type.
If you still fail in your New Year’s resolutions because of these, take me out of the question.
But I believe this is not only about resolutions. These are the secrets to success.
If you want to be successful, don’t focus on the fruits: your job, your family, your happiness. Instead, focus on your roots.
What habits do you need to have to improve your professional life?
What will make your relationships flourish every day?
How will you see life each day so that you become happier and at peace?
The choice is yours.
